The Allman Brothers: Brothes And Sisters
The Allman Brothers Band
Deluxe two CD edition includes a bonus CD containing previously unreleased rehearsals and outtakes as well as the brand-new archival find, 'A Minor Jam'. Digitally remastered edition of the Southern Rock band's 1973 album. Brothers And Sisters documents a band reinventing itself and finding a new direction after a traumatic loss. By the time they released the album, The Allman Brothers Band had experienced dizzying highs and soul-crushing lows. The group had spent its first two years developing its formidable collective chemistry into an unprecedented stylistic fusion that established it as the era's most influential American rock act. But just as the band had achieved a hard-won commercial breakthrough with 1971's At Fillmore East, it suffered a devastating loss with the death of Duane Allman, its founder, leader and musical visionary, in a motorcycle crash on October 29, 1971. Following Duane's traumatic passing, the band regained its bearings and soldiered on, with Duane's brother, singer/organist Gregg Allman, and guitarist/vocalist Dickey Betts now the lone axeman in an act famous for its dual-guitar fireworks-assuming more prominent roles in its direction.
